Lenovo Vibe K5 Note Looks Sleek with VR Support
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note emerged early 2016 as a mid-range smartphone to feature a VR mode at an affordable price. The phone which adopts the TheatreMax technology can be inserted into a compatible VR headset to watch videos and play games. Being one of the largest smartphone brands in India, Lenovo continues its success with the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note when it was released to the Indian market.
Powered by a 64-bit Helio P10 octa-core processor, the smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 with up to 3GB RAM and 128GB microSD storage. With a display of 5.5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080) at 403 pixels per inch with 178 deg wide-viewing, the phone also features a max 8 MP front camera and another 13 MP PDAF camera at the rear.
Equipped with a 3500 mAh Li-polymer non-removable battery, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note offers connectivity such as 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WIFI, GPS and Bluetooth 4.1 LE, FM radio, high-speed LTE (4G) data networks as well as gravitation, proximity, light, e-compass and gyroscope sensors. It also comes with a dual nano-SIM card slot.
Our recent purchase of the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note at 13,499 INR from Flipkart India arrived in good condition.
The box opens up to unveil the 152 x 75.7 x 8.49 mm smartphone along with a user manual and accessories - earphones, USB cable, SIM ejector tool, and USB power adapter.
The USB charger supplies only 10.4 watts (5.2 volts @ 2.0 amps) since the phone doesn't support any fast charging technology.
The volume and power buttons are located on the right of the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note.
The other side of the 0.36 lb phone includes a dual-SIM hybrid card slot which only allows a SIM 2 or microSD card to be inserted in its 2nd slot.
A micro-B USB port and a 3.5 mm jack can be found at each end of the phone.
The back contains a fingerprint scanner, speaker vents, LED flash, and rear camera.
We will next test the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note to see how well it performs with other devices in upcoming reviews.
